to and even then at the very last minute. under romney-care in massachusetts, in many ways, this was the template of the affordable care act. this is where things stood after one month, 123 people have seened up. granted, it is one state, there are 34 states using the federal obama care website. that's about one-third of 1%. after otwo months in massachusetts, just 2,300 people have enrolled. it was only after 11 months under the threat of a penalty about to be imposed that more than 36,000 people in massachusetts would go on to enroll. most of them didn't enroll until that 11-month mark. so obama care can work. it won't kick in until the end of next march, five months from now. getting it to work depends on getting the problems ironed out and getting americans of all ages signed up. the obama administration needs to straighten out the political mess it's created. it's not just one future cabinet secretary at stake. this is the fate of the democratic party and beyond it is tied to whether obama care succeeds. the short term, that means getting the website fixed. in the long

? >> right. the white house continues to point to massachusetts where 123 people enrolled in the program the first month. that number steadily grew. >> speaking of massachusetts, i thought it was fascinating yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific
to the first weeks of romney care in massachusetts. >> reporter: now we know the federal healthcare website healthcare.gov . is sick, we know that. we've been reporting that for weeks. now let's go back to when it was launched. we're now getting an indication of how sick it actually was when it was first launched. this site is responsible for attracting people from 36 states to buy healthcare under the president's new law. at the end of the first day just six people we are now told had signed up for health air. just six. at the end of the afternoon on the second day which was october 2nd that number had risen to 100, and only 248 people had signed up by the end of the second day. this, according to the house of oversight of government reform committee who just released these figures. this is bad news for the government because they said b by 2014 they reckon to have 7 million people signed up. clearly there is a long way to go. there is precedence for this. do you remember mitt romney who ran against the president in 2012, well, romney cares will had a weak start. only 123 people had signed
, massachusetts. theoretically, it is a great idea that people should talk politics all the time. the problem is that the nation is divided. they cannot have civil discourse. some programs on c- span, national security issues, people discussing this pointed out that our politicians are unable to discuss certain issues, so how to use -- how do you expect civilians to do so? host: have you have holidays ruined because of political discussions? caller: they can just add to the fuel. roy, from is massachusetts. page, on our facebook most of them saying no. 63 are saying thanksgiving is not time to talk politics. one of the ways you can talk to us about if thanksgiving is a time to talk about politics and how that goes for you, @cspanwj is our twitter address, facebook.com/cspan is our facebook page and journal@c- span.org is our e-mail. taylor, elkton, maryland, democrats line. taylor? caller: good morning. i think it is a great time. one of the things i am most thankful for is growing up with a republican mother and a democrat father. every meal is a political -- meal with is a discussions about
and then open herself and the administration up to ridicule consistent with what massachusetts, a state of only 6.5 million residents, experienced an initial rollout of romney care. not revealing the number of people that paid for the plan and she did not explain why the obama administration will withhold those numbers from the public until december 15. >> the numbers are consistent with the numbers that massachusetts reported and that feel are the most accurate by the 15th of december and we will be able to tell you how many people have paid for this coverage. lou: or disturbing numbers. 55% say they believe the obama administration tried to deceive them about obamacare. compared to only 30% many say we need to throw obamacare ou and begin again and 42% say keep trying to fix it and 10% say leave it alone. well, let's find out our guests tonight have to say. joining us is andrea and greg. cohost of the five and thank y both for being here. i would like to turn to you, andrea. she has become a metaphor for what is going on with health care dog of an obamacare itself. it's striking that this thi
, and they will be lower because of the challenges on the website. with massachusetts, it is the president that makes sense -- precedent that makes sense to look at. you will see that the first month is going to be slow as people begin to familiarize themselves with options and then make choices they want to make when it comes to their health care. the othersident said day just a small fraction of americans would pay more. do you know what that fraction is? >> that is america question. i do not have that figure because here is the reality of what happens when you create a market that provides options to the american people. when you talk about it, and this is the focus we have discussed in the past, joe, on the portion of the percent -- 5% population that are insured in the individual insurance market, they often have one option, one carrier, one plan available, and every year that company can say your plan is canceled and here's your option, and it is usually a worse plan. what happens now to those individuals is they now have a variety of options. they have levels of coverage that begin with minimum leve
. we have seen it work in massachusetts. that would be as -- as undisruptive as possible. in good faith fried to write the law so people could keep their care. we believe ultimately they will be better off when they're buying health care through the marketplace. they can access tax credits and benefiting for choice and competition. but obviously we didn't do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law. that's something that i regret. that's something that we are going to do everything we can to get fixed. in the meantime. >> that sound like you are supportive of this legislation, the various things that are out there? >> we are looking at a range of options. one thing i want to emphasize though, chuck. everybody is acting as if the existing market was working. fact of the matter is that a whole lot of people who are in this individual market who are big health care on their own, not getting it through their employer, they might be happy with it this year, and then suddenly next year the cost got jacked up by 15%, 20%. the average increase on premiums in this individual market f

. if you look at when massachusetts rolled out the hethcare in 2007, the supposed data shows a lot of young adults came in at the last minute. weave a shoddy website. young adults are not going there. they are waiting. another point to be made. we saw the jobs report this week. have young adults looking for jobs. they're holding out on that option as ll. >> rich, there is another thing that young people are waiting for. having kids, i know how they work rick. rich, kids often will wait until they are forced to, until they are coerced to. and so far, they're waiting to see how much they can get away with, right? >> well, yeah. there's that. there is also the fact that the cultural ions, jon stewart are ochingly laughing at the program -- opingly laughing at the program. so you have technology that doesn't rk. this is a tech-savvy group of people. comedians on right and the left laughing at the program. and now you have number three, that obama broke his promises, said in 2009 and 2010. so, you kn, you have lack of trust going on here among young people. i will create actuarial death spiral.
what the president could have done, meaning looking at massachusetts, seeing what the plan of massachusetts did. he noted that the president could have seen that people would actually be kicked off their insurance policies, that there was a lot to learn from the states having control including the biggest lesson of all, he said the president should learn to be honest. take a listen. >> obamacare barely made it through washington, as you know. there is no question in my mind that had the president been truthful and told the american people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket, had he told them that at the time it was going through washington there would have been such a hew and cry against it, it would not have passed. >> mitt romney goes on to say what was good for massachusetts was not good for everyone. if he actually said some of you are going to be kicked off your insurance we wouldn't be at the place we are right now. some people are saying look at the website. every night it goes down, it's not secure. the other
-- >> in massachusetts somebody running for governor, i don't remember the name, maybe you, andrew, who was actually busted on this. he was the head of the lottery in the state. and he ran his face on the lottery ads saying i'm bringing you a great lottery. and then when he went to run for governor he was actually prosecuted for misappropriation of -- wrongly, i think. by massachusetts standards. >> i'm shocked anybody was prosecuted. >> you're asking what he stands for, chris christie. and you're right, he didn't say all the things that he was going to do. >> anything. >> but doesn't he stand for pragmatism? doesn't he stand for a perception that actually maybe there is a movement towards a pragmatic new road, particularly for the republican party sunny just wanted to know from you and from all of you guys, in fact do governor races predict what's going to happen in congress next year, predict what's going to happen in the presidentials three years from now? >> they usually don't. but one of the things you're seeing that is washington is so dysfunctional there's a very good chance that the next pre
in 2009. in 2010, scott brown of massachusetts wins the special election up there after running a campaign to kill the legislation. his victory gives the gop 41 votes in the senate which gives them the power to block any fixes or improvements in the new law. once implementation begins, republican governors across the country refuse to build their own state exchanges putting unexpected pressure on the federal exchanges. then congressional republicans refuse to give hhs the money it needs to build the federal exchange. then there's the obstruction campaigns. they include gop darling like rush limbaugh and dick marsh urging people to avoid tax refunds as a ways to avoid or sign petitions rejecting their exchanges. then there's the gop icing on the cake. a two-week government shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. if the health care isn't dismantled. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington through baltimore and into town because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give th

at massachusetts, which under governor romney introduced health care reform plan very similar to what the president is introduced here and in their first month of enrollment only 123 people enrolled for premium paying plans in massachusetts. they had massive enrollment toward the end of the enrollment period. we always expected enrollment figures to be low. we were saying that before october 1st, obviously the website problems have made it worse but that's why we're working every day because the website is just a means to an end. the end here is getting affordable health insurance to americans who haven't had it in the past. >> the administration has called in experts from google and other tech giants to help fix the obama care website and say the site should be fixed by the end of november. >>> here is something for you to consider if you're going over open enrollment options for your health insurance. the obama administration is loosening rules covering flexible spending accounts. cnn's christine romans joins us from new york with more. good morning, clis teen. christine. >> good morning, carol.

in main, massachusetts, rowed island banned stores opening. >> we. >> it is busy here. there are hours to go towards the 6:00 pm hope time. remember when it was black friday. now i saw references to black friday week or gray thursday. it's the creep of the holiday consumer race into thanksgiving. best buy opened last year at midnight. this time it's setting the clock back again to 6:00 pm local time. people are eager. consumer electronics - the spendier electronics - they are eager to get deals that they can't get any other time. most of the folks gave up their turkey dinner to be here in pursuit of deals on computers, television. some even camped out here all night. >> i only had one blanket like a jack jacket, sweater. my toes were frozen. >> it was the first time for me to be in this line. >> we had a big brunch for thanksgiving. we did it all in for breakfast. and we came here. >> that penny wise young man talked his dad into thanksgiving dinner. he saved up half the amount for a 46 inch television. the gentleman who gets his deals, he's going back to the mall to do more shopping.
. but it's not happening everywhere though. laws in maine, massachusetts and rhode island, ban shopping on thanksgiving. katherine barrett, what are the crowds like out there? >> well they're growing quite a bit. this store is set to open in just half an hour. there have been people camped out here all night. there are people who started to line up this afternoon. but now the line stretches around the building and back across the parking lot. store managers say it will take until at least 9:00 p.m, even if they open in half an hour to cycle people through to get what they want. they are handing out tickets so there won't be that mad trampling dash for if -- for the door. there were people with tents up who had been camped out here all last night. >> i only had one blanket on me, like a jacket, a sweater and some sweats. my toes were frozen the whole night. >> just first time for me to stand in this line. so it's upsetting. >> we had a big brunch for thanksgiving so we did it all in for breakfast and then we came here. >> now, that young man had talked his dad into giving up that turkey
of shoppers. including a number of women that can't do this in their home state. >> we are from massachusetts, the stores will not open on thanksgiving. there's no way. we think it's different. but, you know what, when in new york, do as new york does. it's different. i mean, it feels odd, it doesn't feel like thanksgiving , but we are not home either. >> so, you know, a lot of shoppers were torn when we asked them what do you think it's like shopping on thanksgiving. should macy's be open. a lot of shoppers were in there because the parade. we were from outside of town. we met new yorkers that had had their thanksgiving dinner. it was okay. macy's opened at 8:00 pm. that was not the case across the country. retailers opened earlier. i think for many people, it interrupted their thanksgiving holiday, especially if you had to go work. >> do people feel like the deals are better today on thanksgiving than they will be tomorrow on black friday. >> a lot of shoppers came out tonight. it's cold here in harold square. they were here for the bargains. they are better from tonight. and then the deal
're anemic. as we look, though, at massachusetts, an example from '0 s '06. enrollment was slow there too, people procrastinating, signing up at the last minute. we fast forward to now and your home state of kentucky. it has emerged as a poster child for the south. we have more than 345,000 website visits, nearly 60,000 applications started and some 32,000 have enrolled. why is kentucky working so well? >> well, i think the governor made a decision very early on that we were going to do our own exchange, took advantage of the federal grant program to build the exchange, brought in very, very good people and made some very critical decisions early on that i think helped. one of them which the federal exchange didn't make was to allow people to browse the site and browse the plans without going through the application process. so to a certain extent we were lucky, but it was basically the commitment of the administration to make sure that it worked. when you're only dealing with one state and one set of providers and one set of insurance rules and one set of insurance companies, it's a lot

a proven model. we've seen it work in massachusetts that would be as undisruptive as possible. and in good faith tried to write the law in a way for people to keep their care. although we believe ultimately they're going to be better off when they're buying health care through the market places they can access tax credits and benefitting from more choice in competition. obviously we didn't do a good enough job in terms of how we drafted the law. that's something we're going to do everything we can to get fixed. >> by the way, that sounds like you're supportive of the legislation. the various things out there. >> we're looking at a range of options. one thing i want to emphasize is everybody is acting as if the existing market was working, and the fact of the matter is that a whole lot of people who were in this individual market who were buying health care on their own because they're not getting it through their employer, they might be happy with it this year. and then suddenly next year the cost got jacked up by 15%, 20%. the average increase on premiums in this individual market for som
in massachusetts where this happened and he is "outfront" with the latest. this story captured the country's attention just because of the bizarre, horrific nature of it. remime us what happened and what we're learning. >> it gets more horrific. if that can even happen. what we're learning, i'll tell you what happened. on october 22nd, he was in school. according to people who were there. he wasn't paying attention in class. and so miss ritzer kept him after school to make sure to try to help him. and then apparently she had to go to the bathroom. the bathroom was locked. she goes into the second floor student bathroom. he follows her in and that's when prosecutors say he killed her. that's when they believe he killed her. but they're saying tonight that he raped her and they're charging her with aggravated rape. that is a new develop many in this case. they're saying it is aggravated because they believe she suffered really almost mortal bodily, serious injuries during that rape or they charged with that that happen in the commission of another crime which is in the process of being murde
in massachusetts, people did not sign up until late. granted, if we're talking about this come january or late february, then i think we've got a major problem. i think the questions of what needs to happen become much more difficult. >> kelly ann, i just get this feeling when i looked at people yesterday like mark pryor on the floor of the senate, he just looked like a defeated man. democrat arkansas up for tough re-election battle. who knows, anything can happen. you keep thinking it's going to stop. it's going to stop. but every day there's more bad news. the administration is going to make an important delay of obama care enrollment next year. but your take on this california deal which is being mirrored in places like new york. >> it is. and in fact, laura, about five million plus people have their health insurance policies canceled and 206,000, according to government statistics, have successfully enrolled. now, we're in the holiday season. americans know it's a bad deal and they are starting to see obama care for what it is, it's not just a bad website. they are starting to see for the
start in massachusetts as well. 123 people signed up the first month, for example. do we need to just give this thing a chance? >> well, i mean it's certainly -- i think everyone agrees that the rollout has been a disaster. the waste of money put into this website is a mess and clearly people are frustrated and they can't sign up for something. >> well, i don't know if it's a waste of money. they are fixing it. >> okay. so i guess i would concede that eventually i would imagine this website is going to get fixed. so i mean i get that part. i think the bigger issues that we are going to face are, number one, the fact that hundreds of thousands of people are certainly being cancelled by their insurance companies when they were promised by the president that that wouldn't happen. >> i want to start with that because i want to be fair about that. the people who are getting these notices, first of all, they have to be offered another plan. and the reason that they're getting these notices is because they don't have hospitalization, they don't have maternity care, they have sky-high deducti

the massachusetts precedents. inyou look at what happened massachusetts, something like 0.3% of what would turn out to be the enrollment figure in that insurance reform program is what they thought the first appeared 123 people. we knew it was going to be a slow build. it is no question it has been made more challenging by the poorly functioning website, and that is on us, and that is why we are dedicating the resources and the brain power to get it fixed. the central issue here, as we talked about before, is not can we build a great website -- it is can we make sure that the american people who deserve affordable, quality health insurance are able to buy it? and that is why the president is so frustrated by the website. more frustrated than anyone else, i think it is fair to say. i will do what i did the other day move up and back. you, jay.ank is there a particular problem that it is trying to address? >> climate change. [laughter] that is a very important problem. i think this is part of the president's overall is to address this challenge that our nation in the entire world is facing. he establ
is that as in massachusetts, under romney care, there were minimum standards for health care plans that were offered. the reason it's so is if you want young and healthy people and not picking what kind of coverage they think they need or ultimately the risk model will collapse. it is also true people who get a cancellation notice can get another plan that could be a better plan for them. this all is very complicated and does not detract from the point when he said you can keep your plan no matter what, that wasn't right. >> the bottom line is the rollout was faulty. that's painful. now the question is, whether this next promise can be kept. >> this is the interesting thing. the rollout was faulty. the reason is the tech problems. i have been through a lot of rollouts, not all health care. we are innovative and wonderful in creating health care. it happens again and again and again. the problem is, it happened in the biggest tech rollout in the history of the world. >> do you think it was smart to give another deadline? >> if they are going to make it, it's great. >> it's great. >> you know, my rule
